Chocolate and Coconut Popsicles

chocolate coconut popsiclesLooking for something to keep us cool during these hot summer days I decided to make popsicles.  I wanted something different, something that sweet, rich and with a touch of summer flavors so I decided to make chocolate coconut popsicles: it just seemed like the perfect treat to enjoy after a fun day at the beach. For me there are certain things that are part of summer: the beach, family road trips, the smell of coconut and enjoying popsicles after a fun day outside: it’s just not summer if any of these are missing!  I am lucky that I live only minutes away from the beach and that I get to enjoy sitting on the white sand and swimming on the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico quite often.  I love that my job gives me the opportunity to take a road trips often and that there are coconuts growing on the palm trees on my front yard.  So today I am celebrating my love of all things summer by sharing with you my recipe for chocolate coconut popsicles.
